Apple is developing a mixed-reality headset that will be a good rival in the market. While the tech giant is expected to launch the AR/VR headset in 2023, there are plenty of rumors about the device. As you can access here, Apple has changed its reality headset’s platform, the rumors say. However, it is now claimed that Apple has two AR/VR platforms, one based on iOS (rOS), and the other based on macOS (xrOS). Here are the details.
Apple AR/VR headset may include both xrOS and rOS
According to the rumors, Apple has been working on the new mixed reality headset for a long time. While there are rumors about the device’s platform, there are also rumors about its name. Apple could call the new AR/VR headset “Reality One,” “Reality Pro,” and “Reality Processor.” The company has registered these trademarks for the device.
The sources say that the tech company might release the headset with iOS based rOS. Since the new mixed reality headset could be paired to a nearby iPhone like the early versions of the Apple Watch. Additionally, some estimations show that Apple will ship 800,000-1.2 m headsets next year after the launch of the device.
The headset is expected to come with 15 cameras, use head tracking sensors, and feature a pair of 8K OLED displays, and a powerful M2 chip. It could also have a spatial audio feature (for a surround sound experience.) Also, Apple’s AR/VR headset may cost about $2,500.
